Experiencing Christ in His Experiences to Become the Reproduction, Duplication, and Enlargement of Christ

“For to me, to live is Christ” (Phil. 1:21). Lord, grant us more beholding of You, more appreciating, taking, and eating of Yourself, more digesting, enjoying, and applying of Yourself, so that we may experience You in Your experiences to be constituted with You. Raise us up to be Your reproduction, duplication, enlargement, and expression in Los Angeles!

Christ is our New Year

“The body [the substance, the reality which casts the shadow] is of Christ” (Col. 2:17). Christ is the reality of all positive things in the universe, including our new month and our new year. These outward beginnings remind us that there is always a new portion of Christ for us to see and to gain. Lord, lead us into fresh experiences of Yourself this month and this year.

Spanish-Speaking and Young People’s Conferences

The Southern California Spanish-Speaking Conference is January 12 to 14, at the MCC in Anaheim. Messages will be given in English with simultaneous translation into Spanish. Conference details are posted at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/prayer.
A Southern California Young People’s Blending Conference will take place at the same time in the MCC’s cafeteria (HS) and a classroom (JH). There is no cost and no meals will be provided, but everyone must register here. Registration deadline is January 7th.
Let us ask the Lord to open the hearts and outward circumstances for everyone He wants at these conferences and to take a step forward with both Spanish-speaking and young people.

UK Building Project

Besides the FTT in London, there are also one-week trainings open to all in the recovery in Europe. The present facilities limit attendance to 200 saints per year. At the winter training we saw a 4-1/2 minute video about Woodland Camp; see http://www.amanatrust.org.uk/reports The full development will support attendance of 200 per week. The goal in 2018 is to build a new Pavilion with multiple meeting places, dining facility, offices, and a book shop. The financial need is about $2.5 million.
Pray for the Lord to grace many saints locally and around the world to participate. Offerings may be given to the church in LA, designated UK Building Fund or by other means described at http://www.lordsmove.org/ukbuildingfund/.

Lord’s Move in Asia

This month’s newsletter has reports from the young people’s training and the national blending conference in Nepal. There is also a report about 27 young saints from Taiwan on a gospel trip to Cambodia, emphasizing their fellowship and coordination with the local saints.
